History & History Related Items

The Anderson Family came to Knox County in the late 1700's. Thomas Anderson was a young boy at the time. As he grew, he married and built a large log cabin here. He is thought of as the first settler of Sandborn. Some of the other early settlers were Allen Peaves, who came in 1819 and Samuel Skomp, in 1820. George and James Halstead were the two men who laid out the town in 1868. It was named for a railroad surveyor who was well-liked as he had worked in the area when the Indianapolis and Vincennes Railroad was being built. The first school was opened around 1859. It was the Old Union School and remained open until 1871. Other schools followed. Later, during the 1962-63 school year, students began to attend the Vigo Township High School in Edwardsport. Students have since attended the North Knox High School.
